Like many ancient cultures the pagan Celts saw nature as integral to their lives and rivers, springs, trees, all had spirit life forces. The Ash tree was one of the three most sacred trees to the Druids and Celtic mythology along with the oak and the thorn. It was associated with Irish fairy lore. Ash trees were also associated with Uisneach the mystical navel of Ireland where ancient royal ceremonies were held. It was used in particular to ward off spells and bring good luck by the superstitious Irish. In this piece I have used a simple fretwork pattern to represent the leaves of the Ash Tree. This piece is Irish Design and handmade based on Celtic Mythology
